This material was originally going to be released under the project title "Psychic Negation". However (much in the same manner as the aborted "Void Decompression" side-project material was incorporated into "Insomnia"), so these songs are now being released as a single EP. Two long-playing tracks, both slightly over twenty minutes long, they are both extensive meditations into frozen 'guitar' and 'synth' drone, the reverent ghost of post-rock roughly stretched...
